Superego The novel Little Fuzzy by H. Beam Piper is considered part of the science fiction genre for many reasons. One reason is that it has extraterrestrial life. In this book there are Ewok-Like Fuzzies from a planet other than earth (Pg.11). Another reason it is considered science fiction is because it has another planet named Zarathustra. In this book the planet Zarathustra is where the Fuzzies are from (Pg.1 ). Lastly, this novel fits into the science fiction genre because they fire blast shots on planets. On this planet Zarathustra and many others the people there had fired at least a thousand blast shots including a few thermonuclears (Pg.1). These are some of the reasons why the novel Little Fuzzy by H. Beam Piper is part of the science fiction genre. Zarathustra is "owned" by a company but earth is not owned by anyone humans and animals just live there.Though the countries on earth have presidents.
Zarathustra only has one type of an excellent living creatures on its planet while earth supports many more than just one excellent living creature.
Earth is about 4.5 billion years old while Zarathustra is only 50 million years old.
Nothing or no one from Zarathustra has been able to go on Earth but people from Earth have been on Zarathustra.
Zarathusthra and Earth are located on very different parts of of the universe.
There are no cities or buildings in Zarathustra but on Earth there.

Henry Beam Piper was an American science fiction author. He wrote many short stories and several novels. He is best known for his extensive Terro-Human Future History series of stories and a shorter series of "Paratime" alternate history tales.
Born: March 23, 1904, Altoona
Died: November 6, 1964, Williamsport
Awards: Prometheus Hall of Fame Award
Nominations: Hugo Award for Best Novel, Locus Award for Best Collection H. Beam Piper One day Jack Holloway returns to his little shack to discover a tiny humanoid, covered in golden fur. The little creature has armed itself with a chisel from his workbench, but is peaceful and mostly unafraid. It is soon apparent that the creature is highly intelligent, and he soon brings his family band to join "Pappy Jack" at the shack.

Victor Grego soon tries to intervene, claiming that the Fuzzies are just animals, not sapients. If they were ruled sapient, the entire planet would be declared a protected aboriginal zone, and the Chartered Zarathustra Company would lose its exclusive rights to the resources there. Leonard Kellogg, one of Grego's staff, kills a Fuzzy and this leads to a court case which hinges on whether the Fuzzies are animals or sapients.

After much discussion of what it means to be "sapient" (speech and fire use being one definition), the matter goes to court. In the midst of the proceedings, the Terran Navy commander reveals that his people have been studying Fuzzies, and that they can indeed speak. When processed with the proper electronics, the sounds are rendered as a complex language. The Navy experiments prove that Fuzzies have at least the mental capacity of a ten-year-old human, and are therefore protected under Terran law. Judge Pendarvis declares them to be aborigines, and the Charter of the Zarathustra Company is immediately invalidated.
Kellogg has his worst fears confirmed; he killed a sapient being, not an animal. He commits suicide in his cell. Planet Zarathustra Fuzzies "Little Fuzzy." Article. Wikipedia, 29 Nov 2012.
